SOS & GE / BHGE
“Mount Kenya Challenge”: together giving vulnerable children a home.
"The Mount Kenya Challenge"is a
partnership between SOS Children’s Villages International (SOS CVI) and General
Electric / Baker Hughes, a GE Company (GE / BHGE) with the goal of raising
awareness and funds for orphaned
and abandoned children under the care for SOS Villages.
This challenge is out of my comfort zone being claustrophobic and afraid of heights, yet I am excited for the challenge and to raise funds for less fortunate children. When I was young, I visited an SOS village and met this girl living there and built a bond. Since that day I wanted to be able to adopt or give back to one of these kids, and here I am today finally being able to do just that.
